In the first instalment of our weekly feature, Fiona McEvoy lets us in on her guilty pleasure…
I mean, who are these people and what are they doing on my telly?! You won’t find that rubbish in my weekly recordings thankyouverymuch! But I have a confession to make: I LOVE GEORDIE SHORE. There. I said it.
I cannot get enough of it. It’s bizarre really, because it advocates and encourages behaviour that I often very much disapprove of. It features men with false tans, waxed eyebrows and pecs that could take your eye out. The cast are loud, crude and utterly shameless. Geordie Shore‘(which promotes phrases such as ‘Let’s get mortal’ and ‘On it ’til we vomit’) is basically a television show about a group of people from Newcastle going out every night and getting absolutely ossified.Disgraceful behaviour, as my mother would put it.
Yet it makes for frightfully addictive telly. The cast don’t hold back when it comes to talking about their housemates. Vicky Pattinson is happy to let loose when it comes to anyone who crosses her, even her BFF’s boyfriend Joel- “He’s like chlamydia. Easy to catch and a nightmare to get rid of.”
